SYLG Remembers Kevin Hardin

In 2009, I received an e-mail from a local woman named Terry Hardin. She asked me if I could relate the story about her son, Army Specialist Kevin Hardin, who was severely injured in Iraq.

Kevin was a combat medic serving in Samarra when his Humvee was struck by a an RPG. He suffered a multitude of injuries, and spent most of his post-injury time at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Sadly, I received this e-mail today from Colleen at Bring Everyone In The Zone:

Your website has a great article dated August 9, 2009 about Kevin Hardin who was severely injured in Iraq and spent 2 years at Walter Reed. It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that he passed away 1/22/2012 in Copperas Cove, TX.

Please keep Kevin and the entire Hardin family in your prayers.

    God bless Kevin & his family. Thank you Kevin is just doesn’t state how I feel but alas it is all I can say. Kevin’s family I’m sure are proud of their son who gave “the last full measure” as Lincoln put it. Once again via con dios Hardin family, Kevin is with HIM now.

    Man, that’s sad to hear…
    MY condolences to the Hardin family and friends…we know that their son is now “on patrol” for a MUCH higher authority.

    God Bless you and keep you, Trooper.
